The Samburu National Reserve is situated in the hot fringes of the arid northern region of Kenya, where the Ewaso Ngiro River provides the only relief from the relentless equatorial sun. The region is epitomised by gaunt hills, punctuated by scrubland and occasional clusters of vividly coloured desert rose. Here you can view the rare Grey zebra, Reticulated giraffe and Beisa Oryx. Buffalo Springs National Reserve is separated from the Samburu National Reserve by the Ewaso Ngiro River and is equally scenic. Accommodation options in this region include safari lodges and clubs.
